Some Android models automatically allow you to authenticate using your Android watch. If the PingID mobile app is installed on your phone, and if your Android watch model and configuration are compatible with the PingID mobile app, you'll automatically start receiving push notifications to your Android watch when your phone is locked.


The ability to authenticate using an Android watch varies according to Android model and configuration.

  1. If your Android device and configuration supports the use of Android watch for notifications, when your phone is locked, you will receive a notification to your watch automatically.
